This group is going to be a collection site of information for the website. All of you are from different areas and different backgrounds and expereinces. We already have some resources posted from Tucson,AZ, Thank you Tamsmom,Now when you get a chance post some of the resoures that you know about in your area. It can be anything! Drs, therapy centers, MHMR offices, phone numbers of congressmen - whatever it took for you to get services for your child- Please post here with details like where they are located and what they do for you or can do for others.

My whole plan is to make the momsversusautism.org site a one stop shop for all types of therapy - ABA, DIR, Mercury chelation, ST,OT, Relational therapy - all of it for all parents to have a play to go and get help! I When we collect the info, it goes on the website and then we when moms are asking us q's on the Autism /Aspergers site we can point them int he direction that we created. We can give them the sources that WE USE! We know they are reliable because they are OUR sources. We are building a network of reliable Autism/Aspergers/PDD resources that no one else has because they are personal to each of us. I think it could really REALLY help a lot of people. Give people direction. I chose all of you because I love your posts. I hear what you say to people. You have all been in the same shoes at some point and you empathize with others that are different from you but respect them. I dig it!  If you see posts on other site that you think could help, lets ask the post'er' if we can use it too.

This is a free-time, as you can thing. The more we put into it the better it will get but it will grown in time. Thank you for being members of this very important project. And thank you for being here to help a dream come true! (but thats another post)! Thank YOU!!!!!

This one is not state related, but a friend passed it on to me - www.intellitools.com.  I'm not sure if you want this type of info posted here, but this is information on a computer program that is research based and has been wonderful for many kids I know. 

For Illinois - here are some things I've found

www.autismillinois.com - great links, and general information.


http://www.rampcil.org/ - this is county specific, but great for advocates, and other resources. 

http://www.autismone.org/radio/ - ok this one was a radio show that looked awesome but the most recent show ended today.

http://www.autismlink.com/ - check this out for finding an advocate in your area in Illinois

http://www.illinoislifespan.org/links/index.asp?LSID=11 - all kinds of Illinois related resources.

Last one I have is not at all related to Illinois.  But did you know you can get a professional development certificate in Autism through Penn State?  I was amazed.  I think it should be required in all states, I found this while browsing the web earlier this year.  


Dina - I hope this is the type of information that you were hoping for at this site - let me know if I'm off base. Lynn

Oops!  On the autism link website I posted, it's not completely Illinois specific.  You can actually find lots of stuff there, with some links to Illlinois related content.  Sorry!
